Pellicciotti calls for House Page Program applicants for 2020 legislative session

OLYMPIA Rep. Mike Pellicciotti, D-Federal Way, is seeking applicants for the House Page Program to serve during 2020 legislative session. The program gives 14 to 16-year-old students from across Washington the opportunity to work directly with members and staff of the Legislature at the state Capitol in Olympia for one week. Pages earn $35 a day to complete tasks vital to the operation of the Legislature. A travel scholarship is available for low-income families in order to allow any student to participate.

Who should apply: Any 14 to 16 -year-old student who lives in the 30th Legislative District. This includes: Algona, Auburn, Des Moines, Federal Way, Milton and Pacific.

How to apply: Applicants must fill out two forms. While the House Page program is open to any student who wishes to apply, applicants must have a member of the House of Representatives sponsor their selection. In order to ensure greater access and fairer opportunity for all students in the 30th Legislative District, Rep. Pellicciotti has created an application process to determine who he will sponsor. A nonpartisan committee of local community leaders will review all page sponsorship applications for nominations.

Both applications are due November 22 at midnight.
